5 days till season. I need some new recipes. I got these:

Blackpepper squirell dumplings. I can't make dumplings right, they turn mushy.

Fried squirrel with spiced flour breading. Pretty good. I put salt and pepper in the flour and dip them in egg first then the flour. then i sear them and turn the heat down and cook them really slow with a lid.

Ideas:

Boneless squirrel chili. I could boil or fry the squirrel first bone in then chill it and pull the meat off the bones. Then id just make chili with it.

Squirrel stew. Tried it with rabbits but i put too many vegetables. Which would you use? Gonna need some potatoes in there at least and something else.

This works well for rabbit and squirrel both. You might want to simmer the squirrel longer, depending on its age.

Essex Fried Rabbit - Jamie Oliver At Home

1 wild rabbit,jointed into shoulders,legs and the sadle cut in half
1 bulb of garlic
4 sprigs of rosemary
200ml white wine
200ml of chicken or veg stock
a few slices of stale whit bread
2 big handfuls of grated parmesan
plian flour
3 large eggs
a few sprigs of tyme


Heat some oil in a pan big enough to hold the rabbit, lightley fry the rabbit untill glden brown. Add half the garlic 2 sprigs of rosemary,the tyme, the wine and the stock.And a little salt and pepper.
Put a lid on the pan and simmer for 45mins-1hour, check after 30mins and add more stock if needed(to cover the rabbit).You will know when it is done as the meat should just fall off the bone. Allow to cool down.
While the rabbit is cooking whiz the bread up to make bread crumbs with half the grated parmesan.
In three bowls u will need some flour,the beaten eggs and the bread crumb mix.
When the rabbit is cool enough to handle pat dry and add to the flour,dust of any excess flour and put in to the beaten eggs,then in to the bread crumb mix.

Heat up some oil to 180c(normal frying temp in a home fryer)and add the rabbit pices a cuple at a time cooking for 3-5 mins until golden brown. take out and drain well on kitchen papper dust with the left over parmesan.
Eat and enjoy

Oaktree chili (like Feris likes).

Serve with cornbread and cold beer. Always an opening weekend deer camp favorite!

You could fry it like my wife fries rabbit. Cut it off of the bone and trim off any fat, chewing looking type stuff. Roll it in corn meal, dip it in an egg/milk wash, and dip it in corn meal again. Fry it in hot oil, then make some honest to goodness real milk gravy, and some lard biscuits. It don't get much better than that.

I like squirrel soup,
I take three gray squirrels and boil them to remove the met off of thye bones,
in a large pan I put a46 oz. can of tomato juice or V8. then add,
A clove of garlic minced.
An onion diced up.
Two potatoes cubed.
A pound bag of mixed vegies.
A small rutabaga cubed.
Add Squirrel meat.
Water to cover everything and simmer for several hours.
Add a little water & bring to a boil, add egg noodles, cover and shut off.


Over the last forty years, thousands of gray squirrels departed this world prepared this way.
Salt & Pepper to taste.

(I like a lot of salt)

We usually half the squeels up and wrap them in bacon, topped with some of your favorite momma-Q sauce. Chunk em on the grill til you've finished about 2 beers, then get ready for a fight. They go REAL fast!
